Leo Hunt chose WVU Online because the thought of physically going to grad school, working both a full- and part-time job, working out, and also having a social life sounded very overwhelming.

"WVU Online was the solution that let me balance all my personal and professional engagements without having to compromise."
"I'm a huge data visualization nerd. I love learning new ways to envision and convey a story through a chart. Learning the methodologies and reasoning behind telling data stories was something that I will continue to use in my future endeavors."

Today, Leo says he recommends WVU Online to other students "one thousand percent." His advice is to take time to read and digest all the exciting information you are about to absorb.

"It really does inspire you to do great work!"
